Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives officially releases today! I’m happy to take part along with other members of the Redbud Writers Guild and publisher Paraclete Press.
Stories form the core of Everbloom— stories of being deeply rooted in faith and living transformed lives, as the subtitle says. Some of these stories take shape as poetry, others as prose, but each one is personal and invites response.
Each entry in this collection also includes a prayer, and I offer this one from the book today:
Lord, help me leave a legacy of grace. Help me weather the storms that you have sent so that my words and actions will withstand the temptations and trials of this earth, so that I will not lose hope in your faithfulness. I pray that the work of faith you have begun in me will take root and spread. Amen. (37)
Writing/Reflection Prompt: I’m happy to host a giveaway from now until May 1, 7am Pacific. To enter the draw for a free copy of Everbloom, if you didn’t leave a comment yesterday, please answer this question below: What is the name of your favourite tree, and why is it your favourite? (I love these initial responses, and look forward to more!)
Whether or not you win a free copy, you may also wish to order an extra one or more to give away. Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives is available on ChristianBook.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and Amazon.com.
